, colorado and ohio. yesterday, obama toured the aftermath of hurricane sandy in new jersey along with governor chris christie who had nothing but kind words for the president. >> has worked incredibly closely with me. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> the governor has said he has no intention of bringing romney to new jersey to survey the storm's damage. christie aides are denying any sort of rift with the romney campaign saying it is just about dealing with the storm and not about presidential politics. but one of the main political speculations here is that christie thinks romney has no chance of winning and he is setting himself up for a run in 2016. >>> romney has a good cause to be worried if the polls have anything to say about it. president obama is ahead six points in iowa. that's coming from the nbc news "wall street journal" morris poll. the president's also up by three in wisconsin and two in new hampshire. two
in florida, with senator marco rubio, paul ryan's bus tour is crisscrossing ohio. president obama visits new hampshire this afternoon. and vice president biden will attend a rally in lynchburg, virginia. let's get right to it. nbc's mike viqueira is joining us from the white house. good saturday morning to you. >> hi, alex. >> first before we get to this president's trip north. is tropical storm sandy affecting any of the white house plans? >> it certainly is. you've heard this phrase, we're familiar with it, an abundance of caution. that's what you're seeing from some of the campaigns today. vice president biden was set to appear in virginia beach right along the coastline with his wife dr. jill biden and son beau biden. that event has been canceled. meanwhile michelle obama, the first lady, was due in new hampshire on tuesday. out of again abundance of caution they have canceled, postponed that event. mitt romney was due in virginia beach where joe biden was supposed to be today. they postponed that event. they've altered their schedules. they're going to be appearing elsewhere. you mentio
morning to you. look, it is no surprise that president obama is kicking off the weekend here in ohio. this is really the cornerstone of his midwest firewall. if mitt romney can't win ohio, it is nearly impossible for him to win the presidency. and right now polls show that president obama is holding onto a modest lead here in the buckeye state. president obama made three stops here on friday. and really what was a campaign all-out blitz, two of those stops, by the way, alex, were in counties that he lost back in 2008. he's hoping to kick off some of those working-class voters. he's doing it by the auto bailout. that is something that is widely popular here that, of course, mitt romney opposed. widely popular because one out of every eight ohioans has a connection to the auto industry. president obama also touting what he called an economy that is in recovery. he referenced friday's jobs report to do it. take a listen. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars, and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs an
a dead even race in ohio. five points for obama. when they last tested here a number of weeks ago. shows momentum on romney side. the question is does he have momentum to push him perhaps 270. >> bret: quick answer of impact of the storm, hurricane sandy and what it means for the race? >> could it mean -- i think it's freezing the race. it's hard for either romney or obama to break through with new, with some new initiative while everybody is focused on sandy. i don't think it affects the turnout. >> bret: karl? >> it could effect turn-out. people affected by this; particularly, people unable to cope with it might be less likely to turn out. let's see when the storm hits. when it passes. if people can put themselves back together. the other thing is it will push the campaigning further west. we will see more appearances in iowa, colorado, nevada, wisconsin, western ohio than we would have seen otherwise in fewer appearances and florida. fewer appearances in places like virginia and pennsylvania. eastern ohio. >> bret: last thing, quickly. we had an ipad app that people can put in their m

. part of why ohio's economy has bounced back is we did not let detroit go bankrupt. the obama administration bailed out the automobile industry. it's roared back to life and the big three are hiring again. yesterday mitt romney gave that obama administration success story a little mitt romney tickle. >> i saw a store today that one of the great manufacturers in this state is thinking of moving all production to china. >> wow. mr. romney saying, hey, don't get too comfy there, ohio, with the obama rescue of the automobile industry. it's been better. we saved everything here and that's why you have jobs, but don't get too comfy. i read they are moving all the jobs working for jeep. they are moving all the jeep jobs to china. he said that in ohio on the campaign trail 12 days before the election. and it is not true at all. the real jeep news that day was actually that chrysler announced they were adding 1100 new jobs in the u.s. here making jeeps in detroit. and chrysler says it could hire almost as many people at another plant in warren, michigan. chrysler is investing half a bi
in defiance, ohio, mitt romney gave that obama administration success story a little mitt romney esque tickle. >> i saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. >> wow. mr. romney saying, hey, don't get too comfy there, ohio, with the obama rescue of the automotive industry. i know it's been better. he saved everything here and that's why you have jobs and everything, but don't get too comfy, ohio, i read that they're moving all the jobs working for jeep. they're moving all the jeep jobs to china. he said that in ohio on the campaign trail 12 days before the election. and it is not true at all. the real jeep news that day was actually that chrysler announced it was adding 1100 new jobs in the u.s. here. making jeeps in detroit. jeep grand cherokees. and chrysler says it could hire almost as many people at another plant in warren, michigan. in ohio crisler is investing half a billion dollars in its toledo plant and hiring 1100 workers. but mitt romney got up that said defiance, ohio, and said he r
were all over the crucial state of ohio. president obama made three different stops today in that state. then out west to springfield, ohio. then he headed north to lima, ohio. mitt romney was not going to be outdone. here is a look at another romney campaign rock concert and victory rally outside cincinnati. romney was also in wisconsin this morning, portraying himself as the candidate of change? >> the question of this election comes down to this. do you want more of the same, or do you want real change? and we bring real change. >> do you want 32 more months of private sector job growth? romney sure has a funny way of showing change, doesn't he? take a look at romney's surrogates at tonight's ohio victory rally. former secretary of state condoleezza rice, former labor secretary elaine chao, bobby jindal, tom ridge and also ohio senator rob portman. all five of these folks worked with the bush administration. in fact, mitt romney's campaign is looking more and more like the bush white house every day. romney even pulled out the old dick cheney trick of scaring voters before an electio
important ohio is. president obama holding a four-point lead in this new poll, slightly outside the margin of error and significantly right at the crucial 50% mark. so the question is, what is driving the numbers in ohio right now? chief national correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an age divide, if you look at likely voters in ohio. among voters under the
president obama looking to close the deal in the crucial battle ground state of ohio. this is from mentor, ohio where the president is just about to speak. we're watching that very closely. before heading to today's event, though, the president visited fema headquarters to get a response to the efforts of aftermath of hurricane sandy. he is sending -- >> we don't have any patience for bureaucracy. we don't have any patience for red tape. and we want to make sure that we are figuring out a way to get to yes as opposed to no when it comes to these problems. >> meanwhile, mitt romney also has his sights on several key swing states today, starting with new hampshire. >> you saw the differences between barack obama and me in those debates. i like those debates. i got to be honest. i mean, he says it has to be this way. i say it can't stay this way. he's offering excuses. i'm offering a plan. i can't wait to get started. >> mitt romney will also visit iowa and colorado today, running mate paul ryan already wrapped up an event today in ohio. he now heads to pennsylvania, virginia and florida. we
picture in mentor, ohio, where president obama is preparing to speak. we will bring you those remarks. supposed to happen just before noon eastern time. and you see the crowds there certainly gathering. we brought you the remarks of governor mitt romney earlier, speaking in new hampshire, so we're listening to the president coming up next hour. millions of americans have already voted in places like florida, ohio, and in georgia. but that is just a fraction of the total, which makes the next three days pretty darn important for the candidates. joining me now, as she does at this time every week, is cnn contributor maria cardona. and from miami this morning, cnn contributor anna navarro. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> maria, last week you said that the latino vote is being undercounted in the polls and that president obama actually has a bigger lead than everyone thinks. i want to get anna's take on that one. >> you know, we could spend all morning here discussing the skewed polls. if they look good from my side, the democrats think it look s skewed. i think we're goi
poll shows 47% each. president obama will soon be on his way to mentor ohio to campaign in the cleveland suburb, but before we take you there, listen to the president slam mitt romney over an ad his campaign is running in ohio. >> look, i understand governor romney has had a tough time here in ohio because he was against saving the auto industry. and it's hard to run away from a position when you're on videotape saying let detroit go bankrupt. but you've got to own what you say. this isn't a game. these are people's jobs at stake. these are people's lives. you don't scare hard working americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president's all about. >> the president was responding to this romney ad that implies the auto bailout plan failed and chrysler will move jobs to china, a claim that chrysler has denied. romney spoke last hour in new hampshire, sharpening his attack on obama, and he's all but declared victory. he even called the event a victory rally. >> when i'm president, it's going to be very clear that we finally have an administration and a p
poll shows a significant jenter gab gap in ohio. more men for romney and more women for obama. two focus groups this weekend in ohio, one with men and one with women. >> who is undecided? why does mitt romney lag in ohio? >> i think it's a bunch of hard working people. it's manufacturing. everybody gets up. they go to work. romney, i think they look at him as the boss. obama, you can kind of sit down, talk to the guy one on one. >> i think part of it is, since kasic became governor and implemented his policies and turned things around, obama is getting part of the credit for what's happening in ohio. ohio is only at 7% unemployment. what he's done to sit there and turn the state around is unfortunately giving credit to the president. >> ohio, i think it's the auto industry. i think it's what obama did and when he stood behind the people and the auto workers. >> the unions in ohio is why obama is strong right now. >> show me by hands how many of you voted for him in 2008. how many of you are definitely voting for him in 2012. what the hell happened? >> the promises were not met. >>
. >>> it is all about ohio for president obama today. he will make campaign stops in three cities while vice president joe biden heads to wisconsin and the first lady visits virginia. meanwhile, governor romney, paul ryan and ann romney will all appear together at an event in westchester, ohio. >>> after hurricane sandy the new york yankees are sponsoring a blood drive in new york city. donors will receive tickets to a yankees game next year. great idea, guys. >>> and don't forget to fall back this weekend. daylight savings time ends at 2:00 a.m. sunday morning. we get an extra hour. love that. >>> all day long you can stay on top of the very latest developments in those stories and others as they break on msnbc. and be sure to watch brian williams with "nbc nightly news." >>> and here's a look at what's coming up later this morning on the "today" show. john bon jovi is live in the studio to talk about tonight's nbc universal benefit and the devastation in his hometown. >>> and legendary rockers aerosmith perform live on the plaza. >>> and this sunday on "meet the press" david gregory gets t
, 137-39. this continues throughout the states. you see ohio, florida, colorado. obama's lead is massive. obama built the largest grassroots organization that politics saw in '08 and after he won he continued to build it. this can make a difference of two points and in a close race like this it can make all the difference in '08. it gave obama some already. that's not the situation in this case. people that have been to the ground offices say the obama offices are all about obamament the romney offices are rnc offices and not always all about romney. that leads a conservative like joe scarborough to worry about what's happening that the obama offices are building this unparalleled turnout machine and the great irony that scarborough writes for the romney camp is their candidate drirch by data and numbers his entire life is relying on the most unpredi unpredictable force of all, human emotion, to pull him over the top. i don't understand why romney and the gop have allowed this to happen? >> if it were just about having offices, obama would be in a clear lead in states like florida he's n
electoral votes. including one scenario giving president obama a path to victory, winning nevada and ohio, to get to 277 electoral votes. for mitt romney the path could also lead through ohio, and blanketing the south, to get to 281 in a different scenario. and there are also several potentials for a tie. this one shows the president losing nevada but winning ohio, to get to 269 for both candidates. and late today, the "newshour" got word that romney will make a last-minute stop in pennsylvania over the weekend. we explore the race and the states in play with jonathan martin of politico and margaret talev of bloomberg news. welcome to you both. so let me start with you, jonathan. the president's back on the trail today. what is the state of this race? how do two campaigns see it? >> both are projecting confidence because that's what you do when you're four days out from election day, judy. but looking at the maps and the polling it's clear that president obama still has a narrow advantage in terms of how you get to 270 electoral votes. two big developments to me have happened in the last
. i'm optimistic. politically, we have a great ground game in ohio. i have 14 or 15 obama offices in my congressional district. there are people knocking on doors right now, making phones. we have a huge weekend ahead of us for getting out the vote. a mobilized and energized base. we have had bill clinton here, joe biden, the president, etc. politically, we are going to get the job done in the next few days. host: we are talking with democratic congressman tim ryan of ohio, member of the budget committee. if you want to ask him about the race in ohio or budget committee questions, give us a call. democratic line -- 202-585-3880 the republican line -- 202-585- 3881 ohio residents, we still have that line open to you -- 202- 585-3883. congressman ryan, a couple comments on twitter about the jobs numbers. liz smith writes in -- frankly, that few of jobs shouldn't be getting anyone satisfied or excited. another comment from james ard -- the jobs numbers are irrelevant. obama has no hope of americans giving him another chance. your thoughts on those comments. guest: nobody is satisfied
obama. frank luntz held two focus groups in ohio this week. >> who's undecided in a whole bumpk of you. why does mitt romney lag in ohio? >> i think it's a bunch of hard-working people. it's manufacturing. everybody gets up, they go to work. romney, i think they look at him like a boss, goit who's there. obama, i think, well, you can kind of sit down, talk to the guy. you know, one-on-one. >> i think part of it is, you know, since governor turned things around, obama is getting part of the credit for ohio. ohio is only at 7% unemployment. what he's done to turn the state around is, unfortunately, giving credit to the president. >> i think it's the auto industry, what obama did and stood behind the workers in the auto union. >> the unions in ohio is why obama's strong right now. >> show me by hand, how many of you voted for him in 2008? how many of you are definitely voting for him in 2012? what the hell happened? >> the promises weren't met. what we got is not what we thought we were going to get in 2008. >> i'm disappointed because he didn't do what he said he would do. but i'm not su
importantly ohio, of course? >> you march across the battlegrounds, and you are seeing a president obama edge, including in ohio where as we talked about, 50% plus in polling. over and over again we see an edge for president obama in mitt romney's must-win state of ohio. so we're going to see the candidates spend a lot of time up there in the upper midwest. ohio will get a ton of attention from both candidates. president obama knowing that's a place where he can stop mitt romney cold. so you look at this map right now, and you can continue to have to say president obama has the edge. >> we're hearing that mitt romney is going to pennsylvania. most people would say, why spend time there? i mean that clearly is joe biden's backyard. >> maybe this is the head fake, a bit of a hail mary for the romney campaign. the intriguing thing is the obama campaign is responding with advertising in those states. they're not sending the president there directly, although, bill clinton is spending time in minnesota and joe biden, son of scranton, will be in pennsylvania before this is out. >> very interesting
't win ohio because he can't close a gap in a period of time. he has got obama at 80% as of yesterday as of friday. >> nate sill investigator and alan colmes are trying to make a game that obama. >> real clear politics. >> they lean right. >> i think obama is so confident in ohio, one has to ask a question, why are they deploying 600 lawyers in a county to make sure that the people who are voting get moved along fast enough. i think they are worried that it's very risky to predict the outcome. >> why are the republicans are going after four states in swing states claiming the votes are going to obama and should be going to romney. >> because they know they are losing. >> jon: let's get back to the coverage. if president obama loses what is the media theme going to be? >> i think a lot of people, andrew sullivan, if you only voted, daily beast. if you only voted obama once you have to vote for him twice. i think some version of obviously the american people and alan is ready with that script. they bubbled up and he lost. think that is what he'll say. >> jon: if romney loses? >> it's go
of the radio ad that talks about this. >> barack obama says he saved the auto industry, but for who? ohio or china? gm cut 15,000 american jobs, but they are planning to double the number of cars in china which means 15,000 more jobs for china. chrysler plans to start making jeeps in china. what happened to the promises made to autoworkers in ohio? this same hard-working men and women who were told the auto bailout would help them. mitt romney would welcome the auto industry. mitt romney, he will stand up for the auto industry in ohio. not china. host: so that is a radio ad that we were talking about. this has been on television ads across all media markets as well. guest: what i have seen in northeast ohio, yes, there is a version of that that runs. it has drawn a strong rebuke from the owners of chrysler. again, it is taking two unrelated things and trying to argue that the president is responsible for the shipping of jobs to china. there are investments being made in jeep in ohio. i think it is an example of how important the although voter is. -- the auto voter is. there may be some p
, in ohio it has remained a pretty strong edge for president obama. his advisers told politico yesterday double-digit edge in ohio and some other battle ground states. so they feel good about those numbers. they're emphasizing how many more field offices they have out in ohio, mitt romney using that as an argument to say they're really target particular precincts. they can be on the ground in particular neighborhoods. both getting out their voters, voters who have voted in the past, attracting new voters, and hopefully for them whipping some of those undecided voters, there aren't that many out there left but there are a few. >> ladies, thank you both for weighing in. susan i'm glad we got your ear back in. we needed that. thank you both. >>> so rid el me. this what do richard nixon, bill clinton and ronald reagan all have in common with a state that's up for grabs this election? the answer in just a few minutes. more dishwasher brands in north america recommend cascade. at legalzoom, we've created a better place to turn for your legal matters. maybe you want to incorporate a business yo
industry in particular. obviously president obama signed that auto bailout package. a lot of folks in ohio and some surrounding states are very appreciative of that. they believe they still have a job today because of that bailout. governor romney, on the other hand, was in favor of a managed bankruptcy for g.m. and chrysler. and so he's got to somehow get voters to look past that, that he would be a supportive president of union workers in this state. as you mentioned, governor romney is down in florida today. we are expected after this bus tour to head down there as well. but right now the polls are looking in the president's favor. the latest cnn poll has the president up 50-46. there's still some work to be done here but we can tell you that the folks who are showing up for these republican events are very energized, they are very enthused about their ticket. and now as a matter of seeing, alex, who's got the better ground game. democrats or republicans. we'll know in ten days. >> we will certainly indeed. thank you so much ron mott. safe travels on the bus tour. >>> next up we turn to
there in ohio, virtual dead heat. across the nation, much of the nation as well, president obama, mitt romney, are going to fan out across the battleground states over the next four days. both candidates will spend lots of time in ohio, because as ali pointed out, it's a dead heat. president, three events there. he's going to be talking jobs, and a national public radio poll 57% of those surveyed said economic issues are the most likely to affect their vote. cnn's brienne into keilar is live in grove city, ohio, this morning. good morning. >> good morning to you, cole dad. we do know that president obama will be addressing those jobs numbers when he speaks here. actually i should say, we are in hilliard, ohio, very close to grove city, just outside of columbus. so we know that he'll be addressing those jobs numbers. the big complication for him would be if the numbers were worse than expected. especially if they tick up to 8%, because that was an important sort of mental hurdle that the country cleared last month. and then for mitt romney, obviously, the complication would be if they're bette
, president obama has a bit of an edge in most of the polls here in ohio, but it's still statistically relevant. two things have to happen. one, they have to get out the vote. both these organizations have to get out the vote. there is that small group of voters that can still be convinced. today will be influential in convincing them, soledad, about which of these presidential candidates have a better vision and better ability to guide the future, all for president obama. is this working or is it not? >> interesting. let's get right to candy crowley. i think ali said something that was very interesting. you have this among republican governors where the states have done okay, have done well-ish in the slow recovery and so who gets the credit? in a way they're in a position where they can't say states are doing terribly because it doesn't help them in the narrative. and they can't say the states are doing great because it doesn't helm them in their narrative. >> it's been tough. all three run by republican governors. it's been tough but what they've done, for instance, when you look at
. obama's going to visit colorado, iowa, wisconsin, ohio, virginia, new hampshire, and florida. and an almost identical tour for romney excepts he swaps florida in favor of, get this, pennsylvania. very interesting. now you're going to be looking, there it is, live pictures of westchester, ohio, where a mitt romney rally is under way. tens of thousands there, and lines to come into the rally stretch out for six blocks. this is interesting. does team romney see an opening there? let's talk here now is democratic strategist robert shrum, columnist for "the daily beast" and ed rogers, republican strategist and former bush 41 deputy assistant. gentlemen, welcome back. >> good to be here. >> i want to begin with this thought. not the jobs thing. the jobs thing is too inconclusive. what is so interesting is the aftermath, the immediate aftermath of the hurricane has turned out to be far worse, difficult. people die. gasoline lines. 1970 style stuff. somebody has to bear the blame for that even though it may be unfair. people are in an ugly mood about the aftermath of this storm, bob
